correct a supporter who said this at a new hampshire town hall. >> it's called muslims. we know our current president is one. >> reporter: trump even echoed the bogus claim when asked if he would be comfortable with a muslim in the white house. >> some people have said it already happened, frankly. but, of course, you wouldn't agree with that. >> reporter: on "face the nation oi oi democratic front-runner called trump's views appalling and potentially dangerous. >> he is fueling a level of paranoia and prejudice against all kinds of people and when you light those fires, you better recognize that they can get out of control. >> reporter: but trump's gop rival neurosurgeon ben coordinates went further on sunday saying muslims don't belong in the oval office because islam isn't compatible with the sxiconstitution. minnesota democrat keith ellison, one of two muslims in congress, accused trump and
carson of fear mongering. americanhe said should be disturbed at these blatant act of bigotry. marco rubio dismissed the tlo theories for the united states. >> he is a christian and he is president of the united states and we are going to move on. >> reporter: we asked carson's campaign what he thinks muslims is incapable with the constitution. but one gop rival, lindsey graham, pointed out that most muslims reject radical islam and believe it is per version of their religion. hillary clinton appeared on "face the nation" on sunday. she called for the u.s. to lead the world in helping syrian refuges. at one point john dickerson
asked her digital your late friend diane blair wrote in her diary, on her death bed clinton wants to make sure she is true to herself and not doing phony makeovers to please others. knowing that, give us the three words that is the real hillary clinton. just three! >> just three? can't possibly do that! i mean look. i am a real person with all of the pluses and minuses that go along with being that. and i've been in the public eye for so long that i think, you know, it's like the feature that you see in some magazines sometimes. real people actually go shopping. you know? >> all right. >> cbs news political director and "face the nation" moderator john dickerson is with us. >> she got a kick out of the question. >> she did. a great interview where you covered a lot of policy as well in that interview. first i want to ask you a new poll out this morning shows hillary clinton's campaign bouncing back essentially. a wide lead over bernie sanders nationally. >> right. that is probably good news for
them over there. every poll story has been not so great news and so it shows basically that she has got a big lead and, you know, the other thing she can say is that she might have turned the corner, that she has been going through all of these different interviews and that, they think, is helping with these numbers. >> how did she do yesterday? her first live interview on your program. >> we will have to see how the polls, you know, respond to this. this is a part of a strategy, right? it's the rollout of her in a more longer interviews, different kinds of conversations she is having and the goal here, the reason i asked the question at the end there, what is to present a different side of her and give voters something to grab on to because they are, obviously, grabbing on and hugging bernie sanders. >> i wonder if she gets charged of people wondering if she is a real person. she sits there and say, i am real. >> that is the way people say a normal person would respond to a question like that. >> a goofy question.
>> but that diane blair quote comes from when she was first lady or running along with bill clinton. so it is this thing that has been dogging her and your response is the one that she has and that a lot of politicians have which is that the authenticity of campaigns is lal artificial. >> she called the effort to train fighters in syria a failed program and said that some of what she had suggested -- what she worried would go wrong had, in fact, gone wrong. >> it was like a i told you so basically. that was interesting. she said she wouldn't totally scrap the train and equip program of syrian rebels which they appear to be ready to do in this administration but that was notable she said basically if they had followed what i had wanted, which was train and equip some time ago, we wouldn't be facing what we are now. >> is joe biden closer to getting in the race this morning? >> we have reports that his wife is on board if he decides to run. the biden family bubble is described to me as something -- somebody who works with him says
they have never seen anything like it. if she is board -- >> the bubble or the family? >> i'm sorry. the bubble of the family. they are so tight. it is such a unit that this isn't just about a single man, and so his wife being on board is the part of that unit and so you would think that would maybe suggest he is a little closer but closer to a decision. you know? >> if you're joe biden's campaign right now and you see hillary's numbers strengthening now, how do you react to has? >> well, i think -- as i've been talking to people, every time hillary clinton's numbers get weaker, they say i think he is more likely to get in. and so you would imagine the opposite might be true. because it's going to be a hard run if he decides to run and if it looks like she has righted the ship and we don't know if she has, that would make it more difficult. >> great interview. thank you. >> john dickerson, thanks. this morning, two americans taken hostage months ago in yemen are free. rebels released six hostages yesterday including two americans. 45-year-old scott darden is one
